Warning: Malware spreading through fake facebook “notifications”
Beware of emails saying that you have been tagged in a photo on facebook as they may be malware instead ! This is a result of a spam email campaign to spread malware.
Once you click on the link directing you to the “tagged photo”, your Web browser is taken to a malicious iFrame script that starts running the Blackhole exploit kit. Blackhole essentially opens a backdoor to your PC for more malware.
What makes this campaign even trickier is that within four seconds, your browser suddenly loads a real looking Facebook profile so you don’t have time to figure out something just went wrong.
How to protect yourself ?
In the email as shown above check the sender. The sender’s email is from faceboook.com instead of facebook.com !!
